Helsinki Macroeconomics Research Away Day


Helsinki Macroeconomics Research Away Day (HMRAD) is a workshop organized  jointly by Research Unit of the Bank of Finland and HECER. The idea is to get together Macroeconomics (in a broad sense) researchers in Helsinki outside their office buildings while still avoid traveling.

The next HMRAD will be held on Monday October 24 2016, 10.00 - 16.00, in Helsinki University Observatory, Argelandander Hall. Address is Kopernikuksentie 1, Helsinki.
